Visikol continues growth, expanding Hampton facility

Visikol, which moved from Whitehouse Station to Hampton last year, has now expanded its laboratory space, it announced Monday.

The health care imaging technology company said in a news release that it is adding 2,000 square feet to the 6,500 square feet of lab and office space it has in Hampton, giving it more room for growth.

Visikol noted that it had a strong year in 2020, growing revenue by more than 50% and launching several new assays and capabilities.

“2020 was one of the most challenging years in a century to operate a business, and I am proud of the work that our team has done during this time to not only meet and exceed our commitments to our clients, but also to continue to develop new technologies and assays,” CEO Michael Johnson said in a prepared statement.

The new space will include cell culture and high content imaging to support the company’s advanced in vitro assays, it said in its news release. The company hopes to double its staff and operations in the next two years, and the facility’s affordable price helps it keep overhead low, it noted.
